I’ve known Jenni Kayne since I was about five years old. Our families would spend summers in the same quaint Lake Tahoe village. I have many fond childhood memories of playing tennis and riding bikes with Jenni and her sisters. Even as kids, I remember that Jenni had a great sense of style. I’m continually impressed and amazed by everything she has accomplished, and being one of her biggest fans, I was honored to be featured on her blog Rip + Tan this week. Read our Q & A below.

Beautifully sophisticated! I made these for a neighborhood party and all 2 dozen disappeared in minutes, I was surprised that even the kids liked them with the coffee flavoring. The cake is incredibly moist (with ombre layers) and the marscapone filling is to die for! The icing is like a whipped topping that is very soft, but still holds its shape for presentation. These cupcakes were excellent and are impressive without being over the top, These are in our top favorites. (Tiramisu Cupcakes) by shauna

Playing around with CAbi's Tucked Tunic a little bit. This is such a perfect piece for layering under the shorter jackets - remember I talked about that a few posts back? And then those of you who have not yet taken a look at our Hourglass Sweatshirt, you should really act fast. This is such a fabulous piece and now that the weather has turned a bit here on the west coast, this one is going fast. Paired here with our Ink Ruby Jeans. by pamela

Nature Faces! ... I remember doing this as a kid. Out in the garage my dad gave us each a piece of hardboard. We'd use leaves, walnuts, and sticks plus any odds and ends of bolts and things that dad gave us to play with. We were entertained for hours making and remaking our temporary art! :] great for stimulating kids' imaginations by leanna
